View Full Version : SLES 11 Sp1 DNS reset config question

16-Mar-2013, 23:29
We have just moved onto SLES 11 SP1 with OES 11 Sp1 and the consultant had the DNS running by way of YAST. However I came in today and had to add one more DNS record and now nothing will resolve to internal DNS names. We only have 8 DNS records so redoing the config is no issue.

I have tried doing a reboot of the server / removing the entry as well as the whole zone. But nothing not even the server its self can resolve the dns.

rcnamed status shows its running.

Is there a way to start the DNS config from scratch?

Just wondering,

Our computer consultant was able to fix the issue remotely. Once I find out more on how he fixed it, I will post back what he did.

That is an unsupported combination. You might want to check the output
cat /etc/*release
to ensure you are on a supported combination, either
SLES11 sp1 with OES11 sp0 or
SLES11 sp2 with OES11 sp1
